Succulent Fairy Garden

The weather is finally feeling like springtime and I’ve been in the gardening mood! I have really enjoyed the warm nights and beautiful evening sky that Texas has to offer. So I am in the process of turning my back porch into my new sanctuary. I have had two empty barrels sitting on my back porch since we moved in and had no idea what to do with one of them. I saw the new fairy garden collection from Consumer Crafts and knew one of those barrels would be great for a fairy succulent garden!
Want to make a succulent garden of your own? Here is what I did.
I wanted my succulent garden to have a some height to it instead of being flat. So I made the soil a little higher on one side of the barrel
Then I added fish gravel to make a pathway from the house to the garden. I also added black fish gravel to the bottom part of the succulent garden for rich color.
I have to say, I think my favorite part about this fairy garden are the Moon Lights! I just placed them in the succulent forest making sure the battery pack was in reach.
I love how this fairy garden turned out! It is the perfect adorable addition to my back porch.
Once the sun started to set I turned on the Moon Lights and the whole succulent garden lit up! This part really impressed my boys. I took the lights out once I was done using the them. They are really small and no problem to take them in and out so the lights will last.

    What is the green mossy stuff you have in the picture after you put in the dirt (before you added any gravel or any other plants?
